Scruffy

“Mom, PLEASE,” four year old Ema said as pulled on her mothers, “Kiss the Cook,” apron, “Use your geeps Mom please!”

“Honey,” her mother said, “It has been two weeks two weeks since Scruffy was taken from our backyard. The GPS won’t do any good, just pray that he can use the map in his head. He’s a small dog sweetie, but I’m sorry we just don’t have the money to go driving around town again today.”

That night Ema slept on the couch, and remained there until her Mother woke her with a blood curdling scream.

“Mom,” Ema said, “Lookit, Scruffy is back Scruffy is back!”

With a growl that sounded more Bear than a tiny dog, Scruffy lunged at Ema blood dripping from the wounds on his face and hole where Scruffys eye was dangling, looking like the worlds most disgusting Bungee as it dangled back and forth as Scruffy attacked the little girl over and over, refusing to stop until Ema’s body lay still.

Perspective is a crazy thing isn’t it?

Tonight I’ll be finishing up a short fiction for the weekly writing challenge and man while writing it, it has certainly given me some perspective for sure. Twenty people can defiantly see the exact same thing and no two recounts would be the same. This is magnified even more so when family is involved. That is the challenge I tackled this week while continuing the book of short stories and I feel it has turned out well so I hope later tonight you give it a read.
